Stacy Johnson and family, Zumbrota, MN

“Last summer we stayed at a lodge for a big family vacation. We had a total of 13 people with ages from 5 to 65. Everyone absolutely loved it. The decor was just breathtaking, definitely the most beautiful home I’ve ever stayed in! There were plenty of beds and space for all of us. The kids loved the hot tub, the pool table, and just hiking around and playing in the woods outside. We put the teens up in the loft area so they had their own space too. The kitchen was spacious and we all took turns cooking and grilling the meals. We each only had to cook once and had fabulous food for very low cost. We loved all being in the same big house, but still with space to be alone if we needed too. The huge outdoor wrap around deck area was a favorite hangout area in the evenings. We just divided up the cost among all of us, and ended up paying about the same as we would’ve each paid for hotel rooms for our families, but we had much, much nicer accommodations than any hotel, and more family togetherness than we ever could’ve had in individual hotel rooms! The staff at Executive Lodging was very friendly and easy to work with. The Black Hills was a wonderful place to vacation, there is so much to do and see…we all wanted to stay longer! We will definitely return! I would highly recommend this lodge and the Executive Lodging Site for your next vacation!”
